Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Olivia Newton-John and her husband, John Easterling, said they are still "in shock" Tuesday after a man was found dead from a gunshot wound Monday inside their Florida home.

"Olivia and her husband John are in shock over the tragic event that occurred at their Florida home yesterday," said a statement from Newton-John's representative. "At this time, we are awaiting additional information from investigators but can confirm that the couple was not in Florida at the time, and the deceased was not a family member."

Jupiter police said the victim was a 42-year-old contractor. Contractors doing work on the home Monday were seen crying that afternoon.

Initial reports listed the death as a suicide, but Jupiter police Sgt. Scott Pascarella said the death is still under investigation.
